    Naomi: Season Two #1 is headed in an intimate heartfelt direction I hope becomes the norm for this series going forward. Naomi is going to have plenty of opportunities in the DC Universe to punch bad guys. This book is where we should be seeing the girl behind the powers. Read Full Review

    While Naomi has made a handful of high profile appearances in other DC comics, her solo title requires little pre-reading to jump into. You can enjoy her first arc or start with this issue. You'll be getting the same quality of comic either way, with a solid blend of superheroics and family angst that make for a very compelling DC Comics story. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 8, 2022

    Overall, this issue ends almost as soon as it began with a dramatic cliffhanger, but what it lacks in serious plot development it makes up for in a compelling lead character. Following Naomi only six issues at a time may be blunting this story's momentum a little bit, but it's good to have the one survivor of the Wonder Comics line back. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 10, 2022

    Speaking of her parents, the first issue here hints of a theme introduced in the TV-show involving the possibility of her father working for some agency hunting aliens (like himself and his adopted daughter). Seeing how this is one many incredibly lame changes the show made to the backstory of the characters, here's hoping I'm wrong with what seems to be foreshadowed and that's not where this new season is headed.

    The opening sequence, designed to mirror that of Naomi #1, is the best part of the issue, which barely has any plot at all.The art is quite nice, though. Read Full Review
